“This year’s Cannabis Drinks Expo was extraordinarily successful, and we’re really excited about the lineup of outstanding speakers for next year’s event,” said Sid Patel, CEO and founder of Beverage Trade Network.

Major theme of the event will be “Growing Your Cannabis Drinks Business”

To help bring this theme and trends to life, the Cannabis Drinks Expo will include an active trade show floor where new and upcoming cannabis drinks producers and manufacturers can meet face-to-face with brand owners, distributors and retailers. Already, there has been tremendous innovation within the cannabis drinks industry. Products such as cannabis-infused alcohol beverages, hemp-based sports drinks and cannabis-infused tea and coffee drinks will be on wide display throughout the Cannabis Drinks Expo.

Excitement is already building for the 2020 Cannabis Drinks Expo and it’s easy to see why. New emerging market players are already looking ahead to the next wave of growth in the industry, and in the process, they are coming up with innovative product ideas that cross over and transcend traditional categories. The place to find out all about them will be the Cannabis Drinks Expo, taking place on October 30, 2020, in San Francisco.
